PAUL Ennis has left Northwich for a higher-ranked rival in order to play more matches.

The winger, a starter only five times for Vics in the Evo-Stik NPL Premier Division this term, will complete the campaign at Blue Square Bet North club Colwyn Bay.

“They want me to play, so it’s an opportunity I can’t turn down,” he wrote on Twitter following his team’s win against Nantwich on Saturday.

Ennis, 22, signed for Northwich last summer after impressing during pre-season.

He scored three goals from a dozen starts in league and cup, but has failed to break into the plans of management pair Martin Foyle and Alan Wright in recent weeks.

“I’ll still look for Vics’ results first,” he added.
